NEW YORK, March 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — As businesses across the financial, technology and VC sectors react and respond to the developing situation caused by the failure of Silicon Valley Bank, 5W Public Relations’ crisis communications and financial services team has announced an initiative aimed at offering their expertise to companies and executives navigating external and internal communications to inform and assure employees, customers and vendors.
The agency will be creating and sharing information through regular emails to clients and businesses in affected industries. The topics covered will span internal and external communications procedures, stakeholder mapping, business continuity, FAQs, relationship management, customer service engagement, among others.
